Summary: I read a lot of reviews before I bought this camera. I have VISTA so the software that came with it did not work. I had to go download VISTA compatible software from the Microsoft website. It wasn't as easy as it sounded..... but I'm no techie.
Summary: This is a nice camera and works very well with Skype. However, it is wide angle, and claims to have a digital zoom feature. Unfortunately, the digital zoom works only with the Microsoft application and is not part of the basic camera controls, so it cannot be used when the camera is used with Skype.
Summary: Running a Dell Dimension E810 with 1GB RAM, 250GB hard drive with XP Media Center Edition. Update, Live Messenger became a hassle to use. But the camera still works great with Skype and my wife and her family use ours and theirs (same model) weekly or more.
Summary: After nearly giving up on this item while trying to use it on Windows Live Messenger, I decoded a problem that many others seem to have had--the error message "You have another process/camera program running. Turn it off...
Summary: The VX-6000 is an okay, but not spectacular, performer. The adjustable focus is a plus, but image resolution is nothing to write home about. The wide angle lens is a bit too wide for my liking. The 3x digital zoom is okay, but as with all digital zooms, the image is degraded.
Summary: This webcam was a replacement for the our last Microsoft Lifecam VX-6000 which got hit by lightning. We liked this webcam so much that we did not even think of looking for a different model to replace it.
Summary: I got this because of the combined microphone and the higher resolution camera. In the end, I'm not sure if it would be worth the extra price of this over the VX-3000, but I'm happy with the product. I love the web camera. The zoom and effects are pretty cool.
Summary: If your going to get this webcam don't use the microphone
Pros: The video is OK, but i really thought it would look as good as a camera but none do so if u want to have a OK webcam then this is the one for you
Cons: the microphone is the worst i don't know if being next to my computer or if its just the webcam that makes the microphone suck beaces it makes a high pitch sound to the person im talking to. Also sometimes the microphone on the webcam does not let me use my own microphone.
